Hugely successful week for Kilkenny students at Young Scientist Exhibition
As the dust settles on another year of Ireland’s bright young things displaying their creativity and ambition, Kilkenny students can look at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition as being a very successful one for both themselves and their schools.
Despite not winning the big prize, our students scored very highly winning many categories and being highly commended in others.
KilkennyNow.ie takes a quick look back on one of the most anticipated weeks of the year in the school calendar and a week most students will never forget.
